A 22-year-old Nigerian man was on Thursday arrested for public masturbation and exposing himself to women in a Shopko parking lot at Boulevard in Redding, United States.
The man identified as Kawan Okoye Gaidowsky is currently being held at the Redding Police Department over the incident which happened on Wednesday morning at about 8:42 a.m.
According to the police, he drove a gray, 2009 Chevrolet Cobalt to the parking lot where he parked next to a woman and pulled out his penis to masturbate.
The woman, Ashlee Libolt, which the public masturbation was aimed to please reported the car’s description and license plate to police. An officer checked the car’s records and found it was registered to the Nigerian man.
The police said when they interviewed the suspect, he was feeling extra generous by not only admitting to exposing himself to Libolt in the parking lot, but also to two other female victims who were caught in his public masturbation spree.
Okoye was subsequently arrested for investigation of indecent exposure and booked into the Shasta County Jail.
Police say there may be more victims because Okoye admitted this isn’t the first time he has masturbated in the public.
The police investigation will continue and they have asked anyone with more information about the Nigerian man to call the Redding Police Department.
Meanwhile, in a bid to stop such incidents as well as make a point against the unfair treatment of women, a female lawmaker in Texas proposed a bill for men to be fined $100 everytime they are caught masturbating.
The bill describes ejaculation outside the vagina or masturbation as an act against an unborn child which should attract not just a fine, but severe punishment.
